summer is here and everyone loves a summer smoothie. they are so easy to prepare at home. using a blender or smoothie maker, just use frozen fruit, milk, about one cup of softened vanilla ice cream, and then decorate with sprinkles and whipped cream.
we entertained over the holiday and loved these shakes. i used frozen strawberries and frozen bananas. it would also be fun to set up a smoothie bar with choices for guests. adding a long silver spoon and a colorful straw makes the smoothie even more festive.
